Competitions are fun and giving your teammates a little encouragement is a great way to add to the enjoyment of the competition experience. At my studio, we have big sisters and little sisters/brothers. Throughout the year, at holidays, birthdays, dance competitions and recital, we find ways to encourage each other. It could be something as simple as a sweet note and their favorite candy or you can get a little more creative. Since competition season has arrived, here are few easy and fun ways to encourage your teammates.
